so this auction sells the 'rights' to the 2013 club for $75? And you still have to pay the seller for each figure? Or not? I don't even think that's legal through ebay, seeing as how you have to pay the seller each month.

What a confusing ripoff.

"IT WILL BE LIKE YOU BUYING YOUR OWN CLUB, BUT THROUGH US. AMAZING!!!"

You know, whenever I get my renewal notice from Mattel, I think, 'Gee, I wish there was a middleman between Mattel and I, marking up the prices on all of the figures in the sub and making it so that it takes even longer for me to get my figures.' And now that dream can be a reality! AMAZING!!!

:roll:

"PAYMENTS WILL BE DONE THROUGH PAYPAL EACH MONTH. I WILL SEND YOU AN EMAIL TO NOTIFY YOU TO MAKE THE PAYMENT."

Sounds like you still have to pay the seller for each figure every month. That still really doesn't make sense. What happens if you don't pay one month?

Can't you do whatever you want to with your sub when you buy one?

I guess you just don't get that figure.

So I asked the seller "What are the benefits of buying a subscription through you when I could buy one cheaper on Mattycollector.com?" and his response was "True. But mattycollector customer service is awful and not everyone is happy. With us you are guaranteed a sub and won't get your sub cancelled out of nowhere. You won't pay unnecessary taxes or outrages shipping. You won't get a damaged figure or worry about getting one. If you move no problem, we will ship to your new address. and no credit card necessary, all done through paypal. You won't get charged more than what you are supposed to. And you will have nothing to do with mattycollector. This is for those who have been ripped off by mattycollector in the past."

I'm not even sure what to say about this, lol.

So, um, somehow signing up with this clown guarantees that your figures will have perfect quality control? What happens when he gets shipped one with a paint splotch?

Whoever jumps on this offer deserves to be screwed.
